We decided to try this place based on the good tripadvisor reviews and because we wanted to try some dutch cuisine. When we arrived, the place seemed really pleasant and were seated immediately by the friendly staff. There was alot of choice on the menu so I decided to go for goats cheese croquettes for starters and the dutch ham... More

Started our last day of biking with a wonderful late breakfast at Gartine. The place is tiny, so plan accordingly, but go hungry. Best eggs benedict I've ever had, and some really interesting juice and tea options. The table next to us shared a full breakfast, which looked beautiful and would certainly be more than enough for two. Food came... More

I went there on a Saturday for lunch, and this small hidden place was a real gem. I ordered Royal eggs benedict and pancakes with raspberry and pistachio nuts. I must say they both were great, but the pancake was absolutely awesome. Service was quick and overall very much recommended.

Gartine is one of the few places in Amsterdam where a quick lunch can also be a fresh lunch! It's a cute, family-run cafe off of Kalverstraat (one of the big shopping streets in Amsterdam). We were lucky enough to find a table without a reservation, but generally reservations are needed as they are busy even in off-peak hours (call... More

I'd walked by this cafe numerous times but never went inside until a new acquaintance suggested having lunch at Gartine. The reviews on TripAdvisor are completely accurate - this place is a gem. The menu was interesting and varied with lots of fresh and innovative options. The servers were prompt and cheerful and we had a nice relaxing lunch. Reservations... More

I've walked by this place for 6 months without even knowing it was there until I cam across the reviews on trip advisor. It's really small (only 9 or 11 tables). Eaten here twice, once for breakfast and once for afternoon tea. Both very lovely. But as it's pretty small you would have to reserve a table

My nephew recommended this little cafe to us, and we arrived just after norrmal lunchtime, so managed to find a table for two (it's a popular place). Much of the food here is home made and home grown, which is great. My sister had a lovely potato and herb soup, while I chose a chocolate cake with coffee. Both were... More

We were lucky enough to snag a table on a Sunday before the next reservation came in, but it had to be quick, so no High Tea.. Soup, Potato Pancakes, and Soft boiled Eggs all did not disappoint. Made with the freshest ingredients. They are closed Monday & Tuesday so Make a reservation - and try the tea!

We were looking for a place to have lunch right before we went into Amsterdam Museum and found this place. We were lucky enough to get seats as it's a very busy a place. It's a small place that has great soup, salad, sandwiches and tea for lunch. People were incredibly friendly and the food was excellent. I had their... More
